Large overgrown tree

Reported via mobile in the Trees category anonymously at 19:00, Wednesday 14 April 2021

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

This was previously reported in Council ref: 2662003 by our neighbour. Our house backs onto this overhanging tree and during stormy weather we have had numerous branches fall both onto our garden and conservatory. There are a number of large branches overhanging our garden and these have grown significantly over the last year that we have lived here. There are several branches growing over each other with at least one starting to crack. We are concerned about the damage that might be caused if one of these larger branches comes down. There is also a telephone/electricity pole and wiring that the tree is growing across. It looks previously to have been cut back to prevent this but has now grown back. An offshoot of this tree has also grown against our back wall and caused cracking of our boundary wall so this needs to be removed before it causes further damage please.
